Alnico Tweeter Replacements for Alon Vs

Does anyone know where I can get the Alnico replacement tweeters for the Alon Vs from a cheaper source than Alon? The cost for a pair by ALon is $800. I would need the tweeter model and manufacturer info.

Although I'm no technical expert, I'd beware of trying to do this one myself. Does Alon also have to change anything in the crossover for the tweeter (often this is the case, even for a driver with the same nominal specs)? And you may not get tweeters with quite as good QC or matching as Alon is able.
ALON also rebuild there tweeters,maybe you need to check on that.I think guy name is Carl.

When I spoke to Alon they were only saying that I would solder in the tweeters with the Alnico magnets and told me that there were two wires to solder on each, nothing about any cross-over parts being istalled. I will check with them again.
If Alon says that's all you need, that's great--then just be demanding on any supplier to be sure that the drivers you get are the right ones and as closely matched as possible.
Yes I have read about mfgs rebuilding the tweeters so I am looking for anyone who may know if this is true, or how much the sound changes, or who supplies the tweeters and the model numbers. Or even if the upgrade is really worth it.

I checked with Alon and there are no cross-over changes.

How old are your speakers? What happened to the tweeters? Speaker companies using OEM drivers are famous for claiming that stock units are not the same. Unless it is built with proprietary technology, what you normally have are speaker manufacturers paying $10.00 for a tweeter and wanting many times the price for a replacement. Strange thing is that you can line up a hundred audiophiles who in all good faith will tell you that this is warranted. ThatÂ’s how you get to charge 40K for a pair of speakers, Better than neodymium is unobtainium, then you get into real serious money.
The tweeters are the original pairs and Alon offered an upgraded tweeter and woofer. My woofers are upgraded but I never did the tweeters. The newer tweeter upgrades have alnico magnet structures. I was hopig to find someone who knows who manufacturered the tweeters for Alon and maybe if they also know if there are really any differences or modifications that are significant.

Why does your system list Talon and B&W speakers, but no mention of Alon?

I have too many components including speakers to list under the system on Agon. Maybe at least 30 components, 10 speakers, 50 or more cables, etc. These were at my mom's home and she was using them with some older components, but she is selling her home to move to an active community, smaller home so I am giving her my old Kirksaeter monitors to use in the new home also not listed under my system. I upgraded the woofers a long time ago but may want to use them in another system or I may sell them. I wanted to know if I can get away with finding the mfg that supplies the tweeter so that I do not have to pay the $800 Alon charges (assuming there are no modifications to the tweeter units) and I was hoping for someone who may know this information.

OK? Happy Listening.
I own Alon 5 MK1 speakers and I have upgraded the midrange driver to the alnico driver a very nice upgrade I think. I also am thinking about upgrading the tweeters and woofers to the Circe alnico drivers. I think I saw that Alon uses a Seas tweeter that Alon mods and the midrange is a Vifa driver that Alon also mods. I understand that Seas and Vifa do not sell these to the public with the alnico magnet. I would also love to find a less $ drivers that have the alnico magnets but think Alon is the only place to get them . I need to save some money I want them for My Alon 5's. The alnico midrange was a big improvement over the mids the MK1 had 500$ for the mids 800$ for the tweeters and 1600 for the alnico woofers OUCH

Thanks for the reply. I have the MKIIs so I think the mids are the newer driver units. I had the woofers done by the dealer a long time ago. I wonder what modifications are specifically done to the drive units and how much of a difference the modifications make over any stock drivers.

Well if you find out anything let me know, and I will you.
